BSc (Hons) Psychology, University of Glamorgan.

PhD in preparation for submission. Projected hand in date for this is October 2017.


Hayley Gibbon (formerly Bartlett) started working as a Senior Research Assistant (SRA) for the research team at the Dyscovery Centre in July 2016.

As well as her role as a SRA, Hayley is completing a PhD within the field of Occupational Psychology. Her thesis explores the health and well-being implications of teleworking, a flexible work opportunity offered by a large proportion of employers.

Working with the research team at the Dyscovery Centre, Hayley is keen to expand her knowledge and expertise within the field of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Over forthcoming months she would like to combine the expertise she has gained from her PhD studies with neurodevelopmental research, exploring, for example, relationships around developmental disorders and employment.

Going forward she will be active in all components of research, including grant submissions and publication writing.
